A good mix of classic literature and new writers submissions with solid acting, fine effects, and music that won't let you go until it is all done with you. Thanks E.G Marshall.

Subject: CBS Radio Mystery Theater is Great Drama!
Growing up listening to the CBS Radio Mystery Theater with the wonderful E. G. Marshall as host was a great experience where it remains one of my all time favorite radio programs which I am enjoying listening to again and again.

Thanks to archive.org and all of your contributors for all the great work you all do in making this program and the many other programs and media resources available doing your bit to democratize the Internet for everyone the world over.

It's so cool that CBS kept radio drama going into the 1970s. I wish they were doing it now!

Sometimes it helps to listen to these shows ironically. They can be very dated. But I love how they heartily embrace "noir."

No, these aren't the best-written or best-acted shows but they get an "A" for effort.

Subject: Love this site, and this collection!!!
I was born in '64, and remember these programs when I was a kid. Fond memories, and one of my first introductions to radio storytelling. After these,I went back and started listening to older programs from the sixties fifties forties &thirties. One word of advice though, get a download app if you're using a droid,so that you can resume downloading in case it stops. this will help prevent you from getting zip files that are incomplete.Great collection.

Thanks so much for making these available!
My mom grew up listening to the golden age shows and passed the experience on to us with CBS radio mystery theater. I can't for the life of me remember a specific show, but E.G. Marshalls voice and that ominous music always take me back to being a ten year old kid during a simpler time.
The ones with news and commercials are priceless. I only wish I could hear one from the station in Cleveland, Ohio.

I've been listening to the CBS Radio Mystery Theater for about 3 years now. I love it and the productions are excellent! E.G. Marshall makes a great host. I'd like to thank all those who helped upload these, and not only that, into such nice collections of 50 episodes each .zip file like they are. Well done!

Subject: First Zip File Episodes
Hi.
I've downloaded the first file (first 50 episodes) twice. It will not unzip (some error stating it is not a zip file).
Has anyone been able to unzip and use the episodes in the first file.
Thanks so much for putting these out there.
I'm a big RMT fan!

Thanks Harry, I tried again and when it completed, I had a zip file with 528 mb, and it unzipped properly.

Subject: re First Zip File Episodes
Hello, KenRMT

I just downloaded zip file 1, and was able to unzip it in both 7Zip and the Windows zip program. Here are a few suggestions that may help:

First, check the properties of your downloaded zip file and make sure that it's complete; the zip file's size should be 528Mb, or 540,956Kb, or 553,938,564 bytes. If your zip is smaller, your download may have cut out before it was complete.

I've never tried this myself, but shortening the path and filename may make it easier for your computer to unzip. Instead of having it in a folder inside another folder inside another..., move it to your desktop or directly onto your 'C' drive, and shorten the name to 0001-0050.zip.

If all else fails, and you are sure it is all there, put the zip file onto a flash drive and take it to a friend's computer. Just make sure they're comfortable with putting your zip file onto their machine. Alternatively, give them a disk and ask them to download and burn it for you.

You may be able to download many of these episodes from other CBS RMT pages on The Archive, but I've seen a lot of reviews that mention intolerable sound quality, so try to stick with the shows on this page. I'm listening to 'The Old Ones Are Hard To Kill' with my gal Agnes Moorehead, and it sounds great.

Hope this helped.

Subject: THE Best Radio Drama Ever
Listened to this show almost every night in the '70's, and now I can enjoy it again. E. G. Marshall was perfect as the narrator. I agree with all of the other comments.
Reviewer: RDA - - August 5, 2012
Subject: Love These Old Shows
Man, do these ever bring back memories! Started listening to them in the early 80's as a pre-teen. Still remember lying in bed and pulling the covers over my head during a spine-tingling point in story, lol.

So nice now that I can download these episodes and listen to them on my daily highway trips. Sure beats what passes for so-called 'entertainment' on the radio these days. Thanks so much for uploading these classics!

Subject: CBSRMT FILES
A GREAT COLLECTION OF FILES I LIKE TO SAY THANKYOU TO THE PERSON OR PERSONS WHO HAVE MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US RADIO FANS TO LISTEN TO THESE SHOWS OF SUCH GOOD QUALITY AND VARIATION. IN ADDITION TO ORIGINAL STORIES, THERE ARE ADAPTATIONS OF CLASSIC TALES BY SUCH WRITERS AS A.C DOYLE, AMBROSE BIERCE, EDGAR ALLEN POE,
CHARLES DICKENS,HG WELLS,RL STEVENSON AND OTHERS.
I THINK WE OWE A DEBT OF THANKS TO HIMAN BROWN FOR THESE GREAT RADIO SHOWS!!
Reviewer: id3_audio_tagger - - July 18, 2012
Subject: great archive love it!
I love all of the old radio shows mystery,drama,sci-fi and this is an awesome site! the only problem with this perticular archive is when you upload multiple folders to an ipod or mp3 player you get one massive folder with a HUGE list of files in one folder, or you have to load individual files to keep the list size managable, so I broke the set down into 28 volumes of 50 audio files each (approx 350-550mb)in size but I did not alter the file names at all. i set id3 tags for each folder including a cbs mystery theater image embedded in each audio file (just like a set of CD's) so i can load just a few volumes at a time and never have to check that i have loaded duplicates or files I have recently listend to. I dont know who up loaded this archive but would sure like to upload my edited CD volumes of this set for all to enjoy because they are so easy to manage. Ill Look Back Here Again To See If Anyone Knows If I Can. Im New To This Site.

Subject: Thank You
Thank you so much to whoever uploaded these, my brothers and i used to listen to these when we would camp out in the yard on warm summer nights, that was the only time we were allowed to listen to them, i loved every one i heard back then, but that was only about a dozen or so that i remember.

1387 episodes never heard listening to them now is going to be such a pleasure, thank you again!
Reviewer: Thingone - - November 24, 2011
Subject: Many, many, many thanks!
Thanks so much to the uploader for organizing this wonderful series and taking the time to share it here in right-sized chunks. I'm up to about #85, and there are very few duds so far. It's great to have access to the complete series that opened the door to OTR for me.

Subject: Highly Entertaining Drama -- High Quality Productions
I listened to CBS Radio Mystery Theater throughout my childhood...When I heard the creaking door and E G Marshall's voice I knew it was my bedtime. This program is like an old, familiar friend that I grew up with. I especially enjoy the ones with commercials and news segments.
The program seems to employ a core group of highly talented New York actors because I hear the same voices often. Some of these same actors can be heard on other programs such as Theater Five. Even as an adult some of these tales still scare me... :)
The acting is superb and the breadth of stories ranges from classics, to modern drama, to horror, to the occasional ironic/humorous. I listen to these repeatedly and enjoy them often.
Thanks so much for making these available...my brother purchased some of these episodes in late 80s on cassette tape and now we have the pleasure of access to the trove of them. Highly recommended listening.

Subject: Thank You!
Thank you for uploading this series for OTR fans to enjoy. I hope you will consider uploading other mystery series, too. We don't need the dates as OTR logs are available on the net at several sites as pointed out by other commentators. I remember 25 years ago when I payed $6 for 8 of these shows on reel to reel. Our family appreciates your kindness.

Subject: Thank you! CBS a wonderful series
Thank you for making these into smaller zip files and reloading. What a great series and we are lucky to have them all here.
Thank you again for your contribution of this wonderful series.
Reviewer: XMinusOne - - September 19, 2011
Subject: The only problem with this collection...
The only problem with this collection is the date of broadcast is not included in the individual file name; only the episode number and the title. That is, the downloaded and extracted file name reads, for example:
cbsrmt_0001_old_ones_are_hard_to_kill

The date would provide a little more perspective. However, it's a great collection that's been posted.
